Preparatory course with high achievement

In the canton of Zürich, students have multiple chances to take the entrance exam for Gymnasium.
Many students took the entrance exam after primary year 6, and a portion of them just missed a passing score.
The entrance exams are designed to allow 20% of each year to enter long-track Gymnasium.
If your child did not pass the exam out of primary school, there is no need to become discouraged.


Focus, hard work and determination lead to success.

We review the full content of secondary year 1 at a high level. Students are challenged and supported.
